I bought my daugher a new charger (Game stop charger, not an official PSP charger) for her psp along with the game Thrillville from Game stop. she charged the psp for an hour and placed the game in the psp. The psp said it needed to upgrade to version 2.81 (I think). After a short time, the screen read "upgrade failed" it has been locked up since and now it will not power up. I've tried holding the R button and powering up and pressing the brightness button. any suggestions for a frustrated father???? is this thing "bricked" what ever that means.
